Tengger Caldera

Mountains · Geologic Formations
Tengger Caldera consists of a steep-walled cauldron 10 km (6 mi) across, formed when ancient volcanic activity collapsed the entire area. Out of the floor of the caldera--a vast, ashen plain known as the Sea of Sand--rise five new volcanoes, their slopes deeply fissured. A tour of Tengger Caldera involves driving out to the volcanoes in a jeep, or braving the desolate plain on foot. Mount Pananjakan provides the most popular viewpoint, as well as Mount Bromo, with its huge, smoke-belching crater. The locals consider Bromo sacred; legends tell of a childless couple who beseeched the mountain gods for their help. The gods blessed them with 25 children, but the youngest had to be thrown into the volcano as sacrifice. The locals still continue the tradition by casting produce and livestock into the crater.
